Support Group for Mechanical & Artificial Heart Valve Surgery & Using Warfarin
I'm glad to be at this stage. The pain and discomfort is subsiding and I'm now walking 30 mins a day. I go for pre assessment for rehab next week. I'm concerned that my heart rate is over 100. Before the op it was around 60. I hope it will settle in time. I'm at the Warfarin clinic twice a week as my INR is not yet in therapeutic range. Still getting used to the thump click of the St Jude mechanical heart valve replacement for my mitral valve. Very disconcerting when you hear it loudly then it seems to disappear for a while! Does this happen to others?
